In a small Midwestern town, a tornado touches down on prom night, leaving devastation in its wake. The prom-goers emerge from the school to discover a third of their town gone. Amidst the rubble, a stranger appears – an otherworldly character who identifies only as “8.” 8 communicates through a unique gestural language and begins to acquire English by reading YA classics like “Catcher in the Rye,” “Lord of the Flies” and “Grapes of Wrath.” But when the students start to learn 8’s unconventional language, they threaten to unearth the town’s past, including a shameful secret that most of the town would rather keep buried. ALiEN8 is a new musical about past sins and future reconciliations – about the parts of ourselves that we alienate to get by and the other parts we risk for a chance to connect.
